I think that really had to happen. Firstly him and Wentz that situation was unreconcilable and then doing what he did against the WFT with Sudfeld you could see he visibly lost the rest of that locker room at that point. No going back from there. Jets could be a good option, his type of offense I think Darnold could be decent in that actually.

Eagles are a sorry mess next year. Think they are projected to be about $70m OVER the projected salary cap. Good luck with that.

Yeah I think there was a lot of issues with Pederson both with Wentz and also his relationship with the ownership had gone bad the Cap issue is a major issue it will be interesting to see how they balance that one out Also the Saints are in a even worse place with the Cap at over $95m

Sometimes the bye week can present it’s own issues with rustiness etc. No such issues for the Packers right now. Aaron Rodgers is my MVP for the season and backing it up tonight.

Does help having a great O-Line and and also Aaron Donald being very limited mind. Either way to do this to the #1 D is impressive.

Green Bay do look a really complete team especially on Offense in both Rushing and Passing still really close Rams still have an opportunity in this game also loved the trick play for that 2 point conversion.

Aye that was a pretty sweet play.

It’s not his fault the loss as such as they are playing a really good team but Jared Goff you have to think has now reached the ceiling of what he will always be. Seems so skittish against the rush and it’s horrible seeing him try to go through his progressions at times. You can win with him in the right circumstances but he won’t ever be able carry a team on his back like the elite ones do.

Yeah I think that is Goff won't lose you games but you can't put the Offense on his back still I think it possible a Super Bowl is possible and would really like to see Donald get a ring at some point.

I think the problem he will have with the Rams is that division is just a murderers row looking at all the teams and with very occasional exceptions if you don’t win your division you don’t make the Super Bowl. The Niners will bounce back next year and give Shanahan a more suitable QB for his offense like a Matt Ryan then they will be unstoppable.

Looking forward to this one with the Bills now. I think they just get home but what the Ravens like to do offensively would not shock me equally if they went in there and blew the doors off the Bills either. Long story short I wouldn’t touch this one betting-wise.

Seen enough, if probably the GOAT kicker has not only one but two doinks then it’s got to be the Bills night.

The Bills linebackers have really done an excellent job. Definitely the standout unit on either team so far.

Joint longest Pick 6 Also Lamar now looks injured not looking good for the Ravens if they can't get him back out.

2020's are wild times we live in between Pandemics and Bills contesting Championship best to ride with it.

Wait and see if it’s the Browns you are playing if want really wild. Not completely ruling it out either, it’s just the kind of thing I could see Baker going to Arrowhead and doing.

Yeah never know what the Browns are going to do they had games where they have been really bad Jets, Against Steelers 2nd team should be an interesting game especially given the media narrative on the Chiefs only having to turn up.

Aye I think that’s what appeals to me with them with the unpredictability. In theory with that O-Line and Chubb and Hunt that team could do some damage to the KC Defense however Mahomes brilliance is he doesn’t need more than about 25 minutes time of possession run up close to 40 points.

I think KC have played a dangerous game resting starters for their final regular season game. It’s been a long time since Mahomes etc have seen live action so that would concern me. They are still favourites but the Ravens fell foul of this last season and got caught cold by the Titans.

Fair play to KC they’ve looked really good on offense early.

When will teams learn though to get physical with Kelce at the line. Giving him a free release like on that TD is just going to mean a very long day for you.

That was a dumb decision by Higgins he should of tucked it instead of trying to extend to get the TD and it ended up being a touchback especially as the Browns have such excellent short yardage Running Backs.

Probably should have kept his opinions to himself after getting curb-stomped by the Browns but Chase Claypool with his "Browns are geting clapped next week" is looking very prophetic. Increasingly looks like the Browns were rather flattered by beating a Steelers team which is on the decline.

What a play by Austin Hooper on fourth down. Looking really ominous right now for KC.

Mahomes now out for the game and even if KC get through he will be in protocol for the whole week leading up to the Championship game.

Why on earth would you call that with Chad Henne? Hell of a duck he just threw there :ohm:

Seeing these clips of all Bradys Super Bowls is the closest us Pats fans will get to the playoffs for the next year or so. Will have to do I guess.

Am glad that the game wasn't swung off the back of Mahomes concussion. Let the best two teams fight it out next week. A lot of eyes on Mahomes as the week progresses but even if he makes it have to think the pendulum is slightly toward the Bills all of a sudden.

So it's the Chiefs should be a really interesting match up hopefully Mahomes can get out of Concussion Protocol for the game on Sunday. On the Browns I think they should be happy the way they played Stefanski looks like a really good Coach who when at start of the year was not expecting to even be in the Playoffs.

On the Pats if they don't make the Playoffs in 21 they are hard knocks eligable and it would be fun to see Belichick deal with that.

Suppose for the Bills if they were to go to the Super Bowl it would be an interesting twist of fate if it ended up being Brady they came up against after he had his way with them for so many years.

After they swept the Pats this year would be almost like coming up against the final boss if it were to happen. My suspicion is the Saints are going to beat them though and give Brees the big send-off if rumours are true this is his final year.

Biggest winner from this Saints - Bucs game is Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. I can safely say based on this neither team are winning at Lambeau.

Got nothing but the utmost respect for Drew Brees but his arm strength just isn't there anymore and Payton having to scheme around it. The Buccs on the other hand just constant basic errors, the kind of which should have been ironed out mid-season.

Where do we reckon Stafford is ending up then? Colts seem a good fit, not far to move from Detroit and a very good team who just lost their QB to retirement. Could slot right in tbh.

49ers to upgrade them at QB, or is that harsh on Jimmy G? Although they'd be great with him (Stafford) too, if everyone is fit again next year. Steelers and Patriots possible too?
